The ASG eye hospital in Srinagar city of the Indian union territory of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) is now equipped with state of art vitreoretinal surgical set up.
According to a statement, the hospital now proudly owns Alcon Constellation Machine for VR surgeries.
“This is the first of its kind in the private sector in Valley. It is a great boon for retinal patients who can avail world class facility at their doorsteps now,” the statement read.
Dr Atif Ali Mir who heads the Retina department said this will definitely give us an edge in dealing with complicated retinal cases.
Previously, the hospital had a similar machine for vitreoretinal surgeries but the Alcon Constellation, as per Dr. Shazia Shafi, Consultant Cateract and glaucoma surgeon at ASG Eye Hospital, is far better than the previous one.
“Alcon Constellation machine is for the first time in Valley’s private hospital,” said Dr. Shafi. “The machine is allowing surgeons to perform efficient and safer surgeries.”
